UNESCO World Heritage Committee Adds Aphrodisias In Turkey To World Heritage List

by Kelly Harold

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee has added the Aphrodisias Archaeological Site to its World Heritage List, making this the 17th UNESCO recognized site in Turkey and the 1,073rd site on the list.

Discovered in 1958, the site is located in southwestern Turkey and consists of two components: the archaeological site of Aphrodisias and the marble quarries northeast of the city. The temple of Aphrodite dates from the third century BCE and the city was built one century later. The city streets include temples, a theater, an agora and two bath complexes.

Other Turkish sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage List include Hierapolis-Pamukkale, Selimiye Mosque and its Social Complex, Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia, City of Safranbolu and more.
